Celebrating 60 Years: Gardens as Art


Thursday Mar 12th, 2015

Gardens as art. Gardens are a sculptural art that you can enjoy by moving thru them. The spatial delineation and the modulation of these spaces are one of the subtle elements that help to make gardens so enjoyable. The manipulation of these elements, particularly the spatial elements can make a great garden.

Other elements of great design, rhythm, repetition, contrast, texture, and color can help to strengthen and effect different emotions. Beyond this gardens are dynamic, and change, over the years, each season, daily with the weather and even during the day as the lighting or exposure shifts. The wind and the wildlife further enhance our experience.

Here is a garden caught in a moments demonstrating the beauty and warmth of a hazy summer day! Garden as Art and Art of a Garden! This painting is on display at the Erie Art Museum until March 15. Celebrating 60 years of improving Erie's environment!

Krista and I would like to pass on to your crew that we really do enjoy our front yard. We have found people stopping by to look at it as if it were a piece of art, of course we know it is. It has made a big difference in our enjoyment of our home. We will highly recommend you to all of our friends.
